Finished on Monday and knit on size 2 circulars with Noro sock yarn, this will be the last pair of socks in 2010.
I usually like the way Noro stripes, but this skein didn't look like it contained so much green. I probably will not purchase another skein of Noro sock yarn: in places it was thick and not plied; others, thin and nearly a thread. Since this yarn does not contain superwash wool, the socks will need to be washed by hand.
Update - March 5, 2011 - I decided to launder this pair with my other wool socks in a mesh bag in the regular wash. (I always air-dry my hand-knit socks on a laundry rack). These socks felted a bit in the wash but not enough to affect the overall fit. I've washed them this way three or four times without a problem.
